Summaries for VLDLR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VLDLR Gene

  • The low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) gene family consists of cell surface proteins involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis of specific ligands. This gene encodes a lipoprotein receptor that is a member of the LDLR family and plays important roles in VLDL-triglyceride metabolism and the reelin signaling pathway. Mutations in this gene cause VLDLR-associated cerebellar hypoplasia. Alternative splicing generates multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2009]

GeneCards Summary for VLDLR Gene

VLDLR (Very Low Density Lipoprotein Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VLDLR include Cerebellar Hypoplasia And Mental Retardation With Or Without Quadrupedal Locomotion 1 and Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Among its related pathways are Reelin Pathway (Cajal-Retzius cells) and Reelin signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and glycoprotein binding. An important paralog of this gene is LRP8.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VLDLR Gene

  • Binds VLDL and transports it into cells by endocytosis. In order to be internalized, the receptor-ligand complexes must first cluster into clathrin-coated pits. Binding to Reelin induces tyrosine phosphorylation of Dab1 and modulation of Tau phosphorylation (By similarity).
